    JL Audio 6W3V3-4 used for midbass?

    what do you guys think.... can the 6W3 be used in front doors as midbass driver? i have never ran an independent midbass speaker, only 2-way components. if this is a stupid question please take it easy on me. -thanks

    These are pretty deep for their size because they are a true subwoofer, I just installed a pair in my wife's suv and these da*n things will hammer. If you have doors deep enough then sure try them out....



    Just when they though it couldn't get any worse, in came the Lord of Kaos, the Darkhart has arisen from his century long slumber..

    I can't say I would try it....

    For the work you'll put into making them work, you can get a driver that will perform just as well and likely better.

    Remember this is a SUBWOOFER, use it as such.

    Yes it is primarily a subwoofer but seeing as how it has a usable frequency range of 30-300hz and midbass general falls somewhere around 60-275hz approx. surely it would hurt to at least try them to see how they fair especially if you already have them....

    Anarchy are probably a better choice for tight, accurate midbass vs sub bass

    I was told the JLs are very good sounding and drop pretty low, but dont do that well IB. You basically need an enclosure for them to sound good. Again, I never heard them in a door, but my local JL shop said they have tried and the results werent that great. They said the sound like a completely different speaker in a box of some sort.
